I think this is a most appropriate review and giveaway for this time of year, don’t you? Nobody likes to talk about chafing, but it is a fact of life for all of us. The nice folks at Lanacane must have seen how sweaty I get during my workouts and sent me some of their Anti-Chafing gel to try.
Of course, chafing doesn’t just happen with exercise. Wish this stuff was around when I had chub-rub on my inner thighs growing up (okay, I had it as an adult, too). Ugh!
Here is how Lanacane’s product works:
Lanacane™ Anti-Chafing Gel works by forming a silky “surface” on your skin that prevents repeated rubbing of skin on skin or on clothing from irritating skin. It dries to a non-greasy finish on the skin, is non-staining and is gentle enough to use anywhere on the body, everyday.
Here is what the product looks like out of the tube and the recommended pea-size application:
This little bit covered an area about the size of the back of my hand.
It rubs in with a slippery, powdery-type feel and is clear. It almost feels greasy, but it isn’t. It’s also odor free. I was expecting it to smell like menthol, isn’t that weird? It doesn’t stain clothing, which is nice, especially when you need to apply it in areas like waistbands and under bras (where heat rash sucks!). Thoughts to try this on my feet before running has crossed my mind. Wonder if it would prevent blisters?
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch.
Note that this product is gluten free! You can now find it in the USat any major drug store. Apparently this product has been available in Europe for a while now. It is waterproof, but with a lot of sweating, you will want to reapply after a couple hours.
The generous folks at Lanacane have also offered a sample of this product to one of my readers! This giveaway is open to everyone (Yay!!).
